Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. Place the peeled and deveined shrimp into a large bowl.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, brown sugar and Old Bay seasoning (or other seasoning blend.) Add a few pinches of salt and pepper. Pour over the shrimp and toss together.
  4. In a grill basket or wire veggie basket, grill the shrimp over direct heat. Shake and toss the grill basket to help the shrimp cook through faster. Grill until all shrimp are pink and cooked through.

  7. Serve Shrimp on the Barbie with lemon wedge garnish and side of bread and veggies.
